A great place to bring the little ones. They run good tours, special events, and have very cute and friendly calves!

This is one of Vermonts premier agricultural and educational facilities dealing with stewardship of our land, history of farming and so much more. Chance to pet a cow also. Fun.

This museum & farm explains farming and agriculture in Vermont so well, with displays, oral histories, and equipment, and the real animals, and workings. The introductory movie is excellent. I especially like the tour of the farm manager's home and the creamery in the cellar.

I have been here many times with family and friends. It is a working farm with a large herd of Jersey cattle, sheep and horses. Many of the staff members are local farmers and they can provide a lot of information about the animals and the farm. There are often special events on weekends with wagon rides, ice cream and...

We enjoyed this quite a bit. There are dairy cattle, and chickens and sheep. Demonstrations galore, and touring the farm manager's house is very educating. He was, obviously, very important to the farm, as the house is quite large, with extra ammenities I did not expect to see. Worth the time and money spent.

Very interesting vis-a-vié history of the area & of the farm. As always, not enough time! :( Very interesting movie that plays every 45(?) minutes or so. Highly recommended if you're into agriculture or a general the history of the area.

This attraction was included in the hotel price. I'm glad I didn't pay the 25 dollar price. I've been to farms before and though I'm a townie really experienced nothing unusual, surprising or especially interesting here. In about 20 minutes I felt I'd seen it all! We didn't go on one of the rides but I couldn't see any evidence... More

Billings Farm is one of the finest daily farms in America and also has an award-winning museum depicting Vermont's rural past. Visit the cow barn and pastures, the sheep, draft horses, oxen and chickens. The museum offers farm life exhibits and tour the 1890 Farm House. An excellent trip for children and adults!

I am a big history and museum junkie and this place disappointed me. The price (about $14/adult) was too much for the little offered, and there was no student discount. :( The exhibit above the ticket center and gift shop was great, and the staff friendly, but the actual farm was dull. There are cows, horses, and chickens, but that's... More
